Rainbow Designs, the Home of Classic Characters, is excited to announce that a new plush character range based on the upcoming DreamWorks Animation and Pearl Studio film, Abominable (in U.K. theaters 11 October), will be joining the Rainbow family this autumn.
Abominable is a breathtaking adventure about a teenage girl named Yi who encounters a young Yeti, whom she names Everest, on the roof of her apartment building in a Chinese city. Yi and her friends, Jin and Peng, embark on an epic quest to reunite the magical creature with his family at the highest point on Earth.
The range that will be available this September features multiple sizes of Everest plush toys, from bag clips to 50cm super cuddly soft toys, as well as plush Yi and Peng characters.
DreamWorks Animation and Pearl Studio’s co-production Abominable takes audience on an epic 2,000-mile adventure from the streets of a Chinese city to the breathtaking Himalayan snowscapes.
When teenage Yi (Chloe Bennet, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) encounters a young Yeti on the roof of her apartment building, she and her friends, Jin (Tenzing Norgay Trainor) and Peng (Albert Tsai), name him “Everest” and embark on an epic quest to reunite the magical creature with his family at the highest point on Earth. But the trio of friends will have to stay one-step ahead of Burnish (Eddie Izzard), a wealthy man intent on capturing a Yeti, and zoologist Dr. Zara (Sarah Paulson) to help Everest get home.
Abominable is written and directed by Jill Culton (Open Season, Monsters, Inc., Toy Story 2) and is produced by Suzanne Buirgy (Kung Fu Panda 2, Home). Peilin Chou of Pearl Studio also produces. The film is executive produced by Tim Johnson (Over the Hedge, Home, ANTZ), Frank Zhu (Checked In, Lotus Code) and Li Ruigang (Kung Fu Panda 3, The Taking of Tiger Mountain) and is co-directed by Todd Wilderman (Trolls, The Croods). Abominable will be released by Universal Pictures worldwide beginning September 27, 2019. In China, the film will be distributed by Pearl.
